By ANDREW BURROW Manawatu Cricket Premier 2 Two- Day Competition, Saturday, Novem- ber 26 Feilding Cricket Club v United Cricket Club Bowlers dominated Saturday's Premier 2 cricket match between Feilding and United on the Hokowhitu Park artificial pitch, with 27 wickets falling, and Feilding had the upper hand at the end of the first day. With the batsmen of both sides struggling, the unrelenting Feilding pace attack had the edge, with George Blackmore taking 5-12 in United's first innings, and Kit Bradley 6-34 in the second. United batted first in the cool north-westerly and lost two early wickets. At drinks they were 45-2, and Blackmore's first over had just gone for 10. After drinks he found his line, consistently beating the batsmen with pace and bounce. In his next six overs he removed the United middle order, taking five wickets and conceding only two runs. His scalps included Richard Woodhead, who looked likely with some big shots for his 19, and opener Vidit Patel, who was caught on 36. Patel flicked a rare leg side delivery straight to deep fine leg, where Dave Sanson, running in, took a brilliant diving catch only inches from the ground. United were all out in the 33rd over for 82. Feilding's innings was the opposite of last week; this time the top order batted poorly and the tail wagged the dog. After only nine overs, Feilding had been reduced to 26-5, and the breeze started to feel a little colder. Some determined batting by Mike Ireland (27), Andre Hoggard (18) and Dave Sanson (18) saw Feilding inch past the United total to reach 118, and a first innings lead of 36 runs. For United M Singh took 3-36, S Mancer 3-35 and A Mason 3-26. In their second innings United had almost erased the deficit when they lost their first wicket in the 16th over for 35, signalling the start of their second collapse of the day. Bradley wrought havoc bowling into the wind, knocking the stumps over five times, and his 15-over spell returned 6-34. At the close of play United were reeling at 67-7, a lead of 31 with only 3 wickets remaining. Feilding will be confident heading into the final day next week looking to secure an outright win. Family skips victorious Men's triple: From left, Lionel Rabbitts, Ken Mott and Tony Jenson. Photos: SUPPLIED Ladies' triple: From left, Maureen Coffey, Margaret Snaddon and Lyn Jensen. By MICHAEL SINCLAIR The first of this season's bowls club championships to be concluded, the men's and ladies triples, proved to be a success for the Jensen family with Lyn Jensen skipping Margaret Snaddon and Maureen Coffey to win the 2011-12 ladies triples and Tony Jensen skipping Ken Mott and Lionel Rabbitts to win the senior men's event in perhaps the best playing conditions of the season to date. Lyn's team put in a late entry to ensure a more competitive cham- pionship in the ladies' event. They proved too good for Robyn Schischka, Tina Vartha and Gillian Friis to take both their lives in a similar fashion, trading ends in the early and middle stages of the games but drawing away towards the end of the 21 ends and winning the final by 23-16. The men's final was a little more one-sided. Tony's team beat the Colin Commerford-skipped triple of himself with new club member, Tim White, and Graeme Burch by a score of 21-10 as the Commerford combination conceded with a couple of ends to play. Steady play up front from Rabbitts and Mott with Jensen unleashing the big drive when required or dead drawing if necess- ary saw the Jensen triple essen- tially control the final and finish strongly to win the title. Jacket on new back Down the line: Rob Lowry congratulates the new Green Jacket winner, Dave Burney, before he hands it over. Photo: GORDON McCRAE For more than 10 years, Feilding golfers have been emulating the success of Tiger Woods by playing for an auspicious green jacket''. More than 60 players compete on Thursday afternoons for what is described as a highly anticipated social golf tourna- ment. The green jacket is actually a recycled Williams and Kettle jacket donated by Dave Morrison. Peter Evans helped formulated the competition which has grown over the years. Points are accrued based on stableford calculations. Skill levels of players are quite diverse, but the one skill required to participate is a sense of humour. This year, Dave Burney won the honour of wearing the Green Jacket.
